Digital Citizenship

Technology Use at Our School

As Digital and Technological Fluency is one of the competencies in Alberta Education’s Framework for Learning, technology is integrated into daily learning activities. Following are some facts related to technology use at Mount View:

  • Teachers are required to actively supervise students when they are on-line.
  • Students of all age levels are taught to be aware of moral and ethical issues around internet use
  • CBE uses filtering technology to block access to inappropriate websites. However, filtering software is never perfect and does not replace an adult as the supervisor of Internet use.
  • Students are encouraged by teacher to bring internet capable devices from home at times
  • throughout the year.
  • All students at Mount View sign a contract for responsible use of technology.

Keep Children Safe Online

  1. Supervise! Supervise! Supervise! Children under 12 should not be surfing the internet alone. Keep internet-connected computers out of kids’ rooms and in a highly visible area. Use “History” to check websites your children have visited.
  2. Learn about the online environments your children are using. Ask your children to teach you everything they know (and they know a lot!).
  3. Create guidelines your children can follow. A family contract is a good idea.

Cell Phone Use at School

Students have access to the telephone at school for all emergencies. We value student learning time and avoid interrupting student learning during school time. We encourage students to leave their cell phones at home while they are at school. If it is necessary for a student to have a cell phone at school, it is expected that the phone remain in the student’s backpack and turned off during school hours. CBE cannot be held responsible for lost, stolen or damaged property.

​Digital Citizenship at the CBE

Digital citizenship is about using technology and participating in digital environments. It is key to helping our students learn to use available technology responsibly in the classroom and beyond. Our school has a Digital Citizenship Plan that is updated annually, addressing how we work to build a community where we live and work together as digital citizens.

Visit the CBE website to learn more on how we support students develop online safety skills and learn to be good digital citizens.​​​

Every year many CBE schools participate in a Terry Fox Run. In 2020, our schools raised an incredible $163,886.64 for cancer research. Thank you to all of our students, staff and school communities who have kept Terry’s dream alive 40 years after his journey began! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/di9w1dX7DI

RT @UsihChristopher: We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make this learning shift for next week. While it is yet another significant change, we hope that it will serve to reduce the current learning disruptions that are continuing to occur in our schools. https://t.co/FOfXcybh91

Starting Monday, April 19 students in Grades 7-12 will transition to at-home learning for at least two weeks. https://t.co/JVJhOw8d8R #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/ZTbWWkZJLt

RT @DalhousieCBE: Social distancing requirements hampering reading buddies? No problem! Our @DalhousieCBE Gr 4/5 HUB students recorded read alouds for younger students to listen to. Authentic audience and sense of ownership and pride! #SomosDalhousie #WeAreCBE @yycbedu @CBElanguages https://t.co/XZZQyF2reX

Each year Alberta Education sends an important survey to parents/guardians of students in Grades 4, 7 and 10. The results are used to assess satisfaction with the quality of education & we use the information to improve teaching and learning. https://t.co/S1qsRKBerD #yycbe
